“Rar-suit” costume audio-effects box

Foofers (the Dragon?) makes scaley costumes and has designed a “rar-box” based on a Arduino + Wave shield to play special effects. When the button-pad is pressed, different sounds are played through a speaker fitted into the mask. A bit late for his halloween, but a good idea for any costume that could use some extra-yiffy-spiffyness. Check out video and details on his livejournal
